I'm like you... Organize by color except for collections and seasonal. Also my scraps are cut into useable sizes prior to restocking :)

Blue and green is my favorite color combination, gorgeous bundle!
Thanks for the giveaway.

I have just started my stash so it's definitely not organized ;) But I only have about 10 fabric quarters anyway, so it's not a big deal. I just put it in a plastic bag right now. I think when my stash is starting to grow bigger, I would like to put it in clear boxes, arranged by color!

GranChris said...

By collection if there is a large piece for scraps by color.

Karen M said...

I sort my stash by color into see-through storage boxes. I keep thinking I should also sort by size, but I haven't done that. I should also break them down into more specific sets. The blues go from navy all the way down to baby blue in one box. I need a new system. Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful fabric.

charlotte said...

I have it all folded neatly and separated by size of the cut, 1/4 yard, 1/2 yard etc. I tried a secondary sort within those categories, by color, but it is not completed yet.

Lisa Marie said...

I mostly organize by color. But I also have some collections grouped together, and pre-cuts are scattered here and there, and large backing pieces are all in one stack, and on and on. Sadly, I'm a bit disorganized.

JoyceLM said...

I organize by color, but I also have separate bins for batiks, children's fabrics & backing fabrics. Thanks.

Sandra said...

I try to organize my fabric by type then color. Have the cottons done but need a few more drawers to do my batiks which are all sitting in a box.

JLVerde said...

My stash is organized in a very uniquely "me" way. Part of it is classically organized (one drawer of smaller than FQ sized pieces, one drawer of FQ sized, one of larger than FQ). It's kind of organized within each drawer but not really.

Then there is all the other fabric strew around the room. Oh, it's contained in boxes and piles but it's not classically organized. It's organized by where it came from. That box is the 12 lb fabric remnant box I bought (and just want to keep all that fabric together). That other box is another remnant lot from a different place. That pile is all FQs from a "blenders" swap. That pile is from a FQ novelty swap.

So, it's organized but I'd have to be there with you so you could figure it out.

I want to just mix it all together and organize by size and color within size, but I'm lazy and the room is cold so. . .yeah, that will happen someday.

MissMary said...

I don't keep a large stash so there's not much organization other than a bag of scraps and stacks set aside for certain projects. Otherwise it's just organized by size of cut!

delaineelliott said...

My stash is organized by fabric type, then by color. Thanks.

Robin (noteverstill/noteversewing) said...

Mine is organized by color, but I keep all my solids separately in their own section.

Shannie said...

Organize? What's that?
I do try but go hopelessly off the rails every now and then.

Joyce Mc said...

Vicki in MN said...

I organize by color-just wish I would learn to put it all back right away, LOL This bundle is absolutely gorgeous and my colors!!

I am not to organized with my fabrics. I have some in clear plastic boxes by types, and then I have some drawers and shelves that hold an unorganized mess.

I honestly don't have much a stash at this point to organize! I have plastic bins to keep the fabrics for specific projects that I'm currently working on. Everything else isn't really organized yet though. My husband is going to help me build a good shelving unit so hopefully that will help my stash organization.

Right now, I have my fabric in clear Ikea containers…not exactly ideal. But I am moving my sewing room to my basement this summer and hopefully I can reorganize everything then.

I tend to buy my fabric in kits so I keep them together in plastic bags.

Patti said...

Well, I try to organize by color. It works for the most part, and when things get out of control, I occasionally need to take time to reorganize and get the fabric back to their rightful places. Love the fabric in the giveaway. Makes me think of being by the water in a warm place. Thanks for a chance.

Tanyia said...

I organize by fabric lines... FQ bundles all together, solids all together, etc

teachpany said...

FQs in baskets, or on a shelf if it's a collection. Fabric collections (like a Jelly roll and coordinating yardage) in a project bag. Yardage is sorted by holiday, novelty, batik, homespun, and prints. Prints are further sorted by color, and all yardage is folded around a 6" ruler, then folded in half and placed on a shelf.

Anonymous said...

Organized...hmm. I don't tend to "collect" fabrics. I buy what I want for specific projects. And I do tend to buy more than needed. So most of my stash is leftovers. Usual enough to make the same project again. I need to work on that. What I have is organized in clear bins, grouped in the same combination as the project. All are cotton, so no issue there. Scraps are what I need to organize most. I see a crazy quilt in my future! Thanks for the chance to win! I've pinned in Pinterest and shared on FB. Thanks again

Mom C said...

Mainly I organize by color, fabric type and if they are specific like holidays, polka dots, gingham. I even have a multi color pile where I stack the fabric that has so many colors I can't pick out the dominant one. Thanks.

mtsuz said...

I organize in clear Rubbermaid bins, by color, stacked in old fabric bolt shelving. It is easy to see and keeps out the dust.

By color

Swedish Scrapper said...

I take a deep breath and put all the prints into color order, folded in stacked crates. I do have a few sub categories, like low volume and feedsack, as well as solids, white solids, and painted linen, and Liberty of London. Sometimes I will separate right away into projects. I find this sorting helps me avoid petting the fabric instead of sewing with it!

Tiffany said...

My stash is mostly organized by color. Fat Quarters and half yards go in drawers, scraps smaller than 1/8 yard go in different drawers, and yardage goes in a big tub. Thanks for sharing!

Terry@ a quilting blog said...

I keep everything in plastic storage containers that are labeled so I know what's in each one. I sort by collection, seasonal and washed. Thanks for the sweet giveaway :)

Melissa @ Missouri Mel said...

Very nice blue / green prints. My fabric is organized by type -- solids, 1930s repros, certain collections are kept separately, cute Japanese prints, etc. Precuts together.

Linda said...

BEAUTIFUL FABRICS!
My fabric yardage is in stacks and by using any two glossy magazines slid under+above the piece you want, you can easily remove or replace a piece.
Thanks for a neat giveaway!

I like to keep collections together, I cut my scraps into squares of varying sizes, but other than that there's no real organizing going on!

Love the stripes in that fabric bundle. :)

Anonymous said...

I organize by: quilt shop fabric vs. Joanns; Christmas fabric vs neutrals, and then most of the scraps from leftover projects all stay together. All bundled fabric like layer cakes and jelly rolls is separate. All of it in clear plastic containers, clear as mud?
Thanks for the chance to win! I love blue and green together!

My small stash is more or less sorted by color, unless I happen to by a FQ bundle, which stays together. Thanks for the great giveaway. I love the colors!

tlcala4me said...

I keep fabric in clear plastic bins/totes - 1) yardage [2.5yds+] 2) solid colors 3) bundles of collections, sometimes grouped by designer 4) cuts 2yds and less by main color 5) precut jellies, skinny qtrs, charm packs 6) scraps < fat qtr in a bin 7) tiny scraps and scraps for stuffing fluffiness into pillows each in their own huge mason jars [pretty visually] that I leave out as eye candy. The bins can be moved easily and until I get a permanent sewing room with a great shelf system this works.

Tess said...

Mine is all under my bed in those plastic roller boxes - one for random pieces, one for complete collections and one housing fabrics for projects started or planned.

laura said...

I organize mine by scrap size. I keep bundles together but random pieces are kept by fat quarters, strips, medium sized pieces and small pieces.

brownj6610 said...

I have my FQs stored separately sorted by color and the cottons separated from the batiks. I have yardage wrapped around archival comic book boards and separated by color and the batiks again separate from cottons. I have bins for Japanese, for Southwestern, for African, and keep collections together for special projects.

Jo said...

Right now this is my nightmare. I had my stash organized by collection and then decided to do it by color instead.
his may be the biggest mistake I ever made I am half way between here and there with piles of fabric everywhere and for the last few weeks have just looked at the mess and shook my head and walked away.

Julie in GA said...

My stash is mostly organized by color, but I have separate stacks of batiks, kid's prints, woven stripes & plaids, 30's, and flannels.
The blue & green prints in the giveaway are gorgeous! I love the color combination.

I organize my fabric by categories: Civil war, 30's and 40's, Novelty prints, etc. Also have strips organized by size.

Melissa said...

This bundle would be perfect for the quilt I am working on for our bed! My stash needs to be better organized. I got some of the larger cuts folded on comic book backings before I ran out and have the others sorted by color in 2 baskets. The rest is in a stack on my cutting table waiting for me to order more backings. My scraps are sorted by color in large ziplock bags.

Emily C said...

My stash is rather small right now, so it all fits in one tote bag. I think If I had more I would organize by color, since I tend to mix collections together to get the effect I want.

Jen Barnard said...

I don't have much of a stash, I mostly only buy fabric for projects I'm about to make. I keep it organised this way too.

ga447 said...

I have a cabinet with my specialty fabric, bins for projects, smaller bins for scraps and divided into 3 sizes. I also use a tray bin of what I am currently working on.

Claudia said...

For the most part, I organize by color, but if I have a line I want to use for a particular project, I keep those together in a different bin. Thanks for the giveaway. Love these colors!

I organize my scrap stash by color, but my regular stash doesn't really have any rhyme or reason. I usually by collections of fabric (whether they were already a collection, or I matched them together), so I keep them sorted by collection/project. I don't have a big enough stash to "shop" my stash. But it's getting there!

Anonymous said...

I organize by season/holiday and cut of fabric...i.e. FQ, charms, layer cakes etc. I don't have a real big stash so its pretty easy to find something I need for a project or to start a new project. Kathy (kerick369@aol.com)

I confess - I don't organize it. I store it in clear plastic totes and I go through every tote when I'm pulling fabrics for a quilt. All that reviewing, though, does mean that I generally know where everything is! :)

I mostly group it by project. If I bought pieces to go together for a certain project. Also I group pieces by holiday. I have one closet just for Christmas.

Um....I used to have it organized by size (2+ yds, 1 yd, FQs, scraps.....) BUT it is now a mess. I do have some projects and UFOs in plastic, stackable containers. One of my goals is to re-organize and give my stash a make-over.

I organize by color and use pre-cut comic book cardboard to wrap the fabric & keep things tidy. A spare dresser holds FQS, bulk material, and project kits. Scraps are stored by color in a plastic drawer organizer but I am slowing cutting them into uniformed squares & strips for future scrappy projects.

Wendy said...

up until last week, the answer would have been "in a big heap shoved into cubbies", but I'm currently organising! I have a 4 drawer plastic bin for my FQs, I'm ironing them, folding them all the same and sorting them by colour - neutrals in one drawer, blues/purples, reds/pinks and green/yellow. Next up is my scraps and finally my yardage. how will I sort them? I don't know!!

lindsey said...

My fabrics are by color, then by large or small prints, then by theme. My scraps are separated in bins the same color as the scraps.

Celtic Thistle said...

In my dreams I am organised, but in reality my scraps are all organised by colour, but everything else is either stacked on a shelf in the cupboard or in a large see-through plastic box on wheels! One of these days I will take some time away from sewing and blogging and actually get round to sorting the box out :)

Cindy said...

I get leftover fabric bolts and cut them to fit my bookcase and I wind yardage on that. I then organize that by color or holiday. My fay quarters are organized on old cd towers, again by color and holiday. Project bundles go on a different shelving unit with my smaller fabric cuts.

I organize in two ways. If I have everything for a project I put it all in a plastic bag, with the pattern. My leftover fabrics and ones I've bought not for something specific are sorted by color (to some degree).

Marguerite said...

My stash is in plastic rectangle baskets (woven), generally sorted by colors. Colors are viewed as read as sold so they are sorted that way. Solids, florals, plaids, stripes, polka dots and novelty are separate. . I do use a lot of specific categories and that's why I do those separately rather than by color. You need to organize according to YOUR specific usage. One way isn't the right way. It needs to work for you to make fabric hunting easier.

Joan H. said...

Kris said...

Not sure that my stash IS organized. I usually buy with intent so the pieces go together in a bag with pattern ideas. IF I don't get to them right away then I might sort out into piles based on color but I don't usually because it is so fun to dig through it all when I am looking for something. I will say fabric lines usually stay together until there is not much left and then they go in the scrap pile. Okay I will just say it is not very organized.

It is not very well organized at the moment, just piles here and there..

As a very new quilter, I don't really have a stash yet. What fabric I do have is haphazardly in bins under my bed.

I organize by collections and then have separate bins for scraps according to print or solids.

I don't have a stash yet. I have been looking at a lot of quilting blogs trying to decide on which design to make for my first quilt. I like the clear boxes that are like small suitcases. I would go with those if I get a stash.

I organize by color as much as possible and I have a winter/Christmas stash.

I have a stash of backing fabrics, fabrics for upcoming projects and then scraps organised by colour, there might be a few random piles hidden away too!

Sadly I have no organization of my stash. Lately what me and my wife have been doing is bagging together materials that we want to do as a quilt along with either a pattern or notes as to what to make out of them. My stash is not yet big enough to do by colors or any thing fun like that. I do really love the colors of this bundle and I have a quilt in mind for it if I win.

I mainly organize by colour, but have Christmas and novelties separated out

I don't have a very large stash, but I organize my fabrics by project

I use clear shoe boxes labeled with the color name. My stash is not huge, but one of the boxes won't close! Karen (kb4847@sbcglobal.net)

I organize by type and then color. I have regular cotton, Asian and batik in different areas. I was lucky enough to be given ceiling to floor display cases which I have in my sewing room.

I mostly organize by color in little Sterlite bins, but do keep collections together when they first arrive. Once I cut into them I sometimes separate by color unless I still have quit a bit left. I eventually want some glass front cabinets for storage, be still my heart!! :)

I organize by colour unless its a fabric bundle, these I will keep together.
